Anita's used to be our favorite restaurant when we lived in Simpsonville some 16 yrs ago. This is our first visit since then and sadly, Anita's has gone down hill. I ordered the fajitas and they were served to me cold (they weren't served in a hot skillet as most places do); the tomatoes were overripe; the re-fried beans had... More

The service was kind of slow and not that great. The food somewhat bland but they only use fresh ingredients. Very healthy but no seasoning. I don't think I will come back but I am glad that I tried it.

This food is bland and boring. Skip this place and try Papa's and Beer. Papa's is closed on Mondays. If it happens to be Monday and you're thinking "Anita's is open..." try El Tejano. El Tejano is cheap Mexican fast food but it's tasty.

Always a wonderful Mexican meal, and the chicken tamales are fantastic. Service is always good, and the prices are reasonable.

Small and quaint with good Mexican food. We went here after our first choice was found to be closed on Mondays. The grilled Veggie salad was very good and so was their chicken soup. The portions are good size.

We heard such mix reviews on this pace and thought we had to try it for ourself. We couldn't believe how terrible and bland the food was! How could you go wrong with Mexican? I've eaten at a variety of Mexican restaurants before but never left so disappointed! Service was fine, nice atmosphere but food had no flavor and very... More

Me and my family have been going to Anita's for over 25 years. It is always a favorite for their fresh salsa and the distinctive Tamarindo Chicken (#13). It is certainly not a combo #1 type Mexican place. I find the ingrediants to be fresher and the flavors to be better. Anita and her family run a great restaurant and... More

Unbelievable I think they use canned chicken in the tacos and salad. It was mushy. Nachos were soaked at the bottom because chicken was not even drained. Yowie. Never return. Should have walked out.

We are frequent diners at Anita's and have been dining with them for over 20 years. We have NEVER had a bad meal. Their cuisine is not your usual "Mexican fare." Anita and family have worked hard to keep the food fresh at a reasonable price. Their fresh salsa and guacamole are fantastic. We eat in and do carryout quite... More

We've been here several times over the last few months and have noticed a decline in the taste of the food during this time. Service depends on your server. My husband and I both had meals that were just mediocre and barely warm. We won't be back.
